I love to watch my kids learn new things and grow as people. They are 1 and 3 and everyday they develope their personalities alittle more. I also love it when they hug and kiss me.

Seeing them learn and grow. Watching how they interact with other kids and you know that you taught them well. My neighbor came over tonight with her 2 1/2 month old son to visit. My daughter kept going over to him trying to look at him and wanting to touch him. She wasn't very gentle but he didn't seem to mind. She even tried to sing to him and was making noises with her throat and he just laughed. She is 3 years old and has severe developmental delays. We are waiting for her to be tested to see if she has autism and watching her play with him made me feel very proud and hopeful in her progress.

For me, it is being able to watch my boys grow from clumsy toddlers into well-rounded, mannerly, loving young men.
